Twenty-six pound Jackson Tawney is seen here with a 37.4 pound watermelon. He visited The Pocahontas Times office last week with the latest “large haul” from his grandparents’, Pete and Fran Tawney’s, garden. Some of the sweet potatoes tipped the scales at nearly three pounds.
Jackson is the son of Freddie and Stacy Tawney, and his maternal grandparents are Sam and Fran McPaters, all of Marlinton. S. Stewart photo
